Janet Abbott is a Star Walk supremo having taken part in every walk since it started 10 years ago!

"I am really looking forward to it," said Janet, 59, from Hainault.

"It's always a great night out and it is such a friendly event as you chat to people as you walk.


"And most of all, it helps raise money for such a good cause, which is what it is all about."


Janet currently works as a part-time Practice Nurse but before she retired from district nursing, she worked closely with the charity for many years.


And in 2015 her connection became personal when her mother Ivy Lyons, 90, was cared for by the Hospice at Home team.


"The Hospice at Home team were fantastic and they made it possible to keep my mum at home," said Janet.
